China successfully launched its heavy "moon" rocket

On Friday, December 27, China successfully launched its largest Changzheng-5 launch vehicle. The launch took place in Hainan Province in southern China. The current mission of the launch vehicle was to launch the Shijian-20 satellite, which will operate in a geostationary transitional orbit and will be able to meet the development needs of the telecommunications sector of the Middle Kingdom for the next 5-15 years.

It is worth recalling that this was the third launch of Changzheng-5. The first took place in 2016. Then the carrier successfully launched the Shijian-17 spacecraft into orbit. Then, in 2017, the rocket launched with the Shijian-18 satellite, but, for technical reasons, the latter was never able to enter orbit.

The height of the largest Chinese missile reaches 57 meters, diameter - 5 meters. At the same time, the carrier will be able to display loads weighing up to 25 tons into low Earth and up to 14 tons into a geostationary transitional orbit.

In the future, the Changzheng-5 rocket should form the basis of the Chinese deep space exploration program, in particular the Moon and Mars. At the moment, China is actively developing Technology for the development of our natural satellite, and at the beginning of this year, the Chinese research apparatus for the first time in space history was able to reach the far side of the moon.

    The Chinese respect and are proud of their country. And for this respect and pride they do not mind any money! What about our power? If respect and pride do not bring money, then our power and respect, and pride is not necessary! Also, people are agitating to tolerate and wipe themselves!

    Our proton displays 24 tons, and has never been considered a lunar rocket for a long time.

    The first launch of the rocket takes place and there are a lot of people around. Put those who do not mind?
    At the first starts, there are often fireworks - it will not seem to anyone.

    But, pi n dosna again ordered seats on Russian carriers for flights to the ISS.

    Testing the rescue system is yet to come. The one chosen for dragons can exactly simulate an emergency situation when the engines of the upper stage abnormally turn on, blowing up the lower one. Premature or accidental inclusion will do the same.
